To Walk the Night was first published in 1937, and is a masterpiece of the school of slow-moving horror novels that rely on characterization and quietly building tension. The story is told from the point of view of Berekley Jones, who relates the circumstances that led up to the suicide of his friend, Jerry Lister, to Jerry’s father.
Bound back-to-back with To Walk the Night, we have Sloane’s other great horror novel, The Edge of Running Water,which is a love story, mystery, and solid tale of creeping supernatural menace.
Along with the novels, there are several essays by Sloane and new introductions by Robert Weinberg. Not to be missed!
This is a handsome hardcover, 250 copies, 6 × 9 inches, bound in cloth with a printed cloth panels, like an old Ace double, with color reproductions of the novels’ paperback and hardcover covers.
